JOIN THE VHSG VOLUNTEER BUILD TEAM!

Do you want new live classes?  Without our volunteer families, we cannot offer new course offerings.   

The Admin Team needs to be focused on closing down our old site to minimize costs this year, so NEW course builds will depend on YOU.

In order to keep Admin Team sanity, the Build Team portion of these builds MUST be completed by JUNE 30, 2022 to run in the 2022-23 school year.  That allows time for the Admin Team to finish the needed work behind the scenes to finalize the course builds.

Admin Team NEEDS to claim back our summers for family time, and the past few years have been extremely challenging.  It is not healthy for our group or our Admin Team to have burnout.  The early build deadline will help us manage this.

BUILD TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES IN INDIVIDUAL COURSE BUILDS:

    • Create transcripts for teacher slides
    • Place transcripts into customized slide templates for classes
    • Find graphics we can use to make the slides more interesting
    • Find videos, create games and other resources we can use to supplement the class
    • Do data entry to create the homework and tests for the course page

ALL of these steps must be completed for each course by JUNE 30, 2022 if classes are to run next year.  Step up NOW if you would like to see the courses run.  Classes can take 6-9 months to build, depending on how many work on them.  After Build Team completes these tasks, there is still typically 4-8 weeks of higher level work to do, thus the deadline to keep our volunteer Admin Team sane ;) 

ALL STEPS OF EACH BUILD PROJECT MUST BE COMPLED BY JUNE 30, 2022 TO BE CONSIDERED FOR 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR 

NOTE:  COURSES WILL BE WORKED ON IN THE ORDER THAT THE FIRST TRANSCRIPT PROJECT IS FINISHED.  DO NOT PROCRASTINATE HELPING IF YOU WANT TO SEE A COURSE OR IT MAY BE DELAYED FOR ANOTHER YEAR.  ADMIN TEAM CAN ONLY COORDINATE SO MUCH, AND WE MAY NEED TO LIMIT TO A COUPLE FINISHED COURSES THIS YEAR.  WE LIST THESE TO GIVE YOU CHOICES.  YOU DIRECT WHAT GETS DONE.

THESE COURSES HAVE SOME WORK COMPLETED ON THEM AND MAY BE FINISHED IN TIME IF YOU JOIN IN TO HELP.  THEY ARE NOT LIKELY TO BE FINISHED IF ONLY THE CURRENT VOLUNTEERS ARE WORKING ON THEM.  IT WILL TAKE TEAMWORK.

    • Mystery of History 1 - Grades 4-12 - No books needed
    • Notgrass From Adam To Us - Grades 5-8 - No books needed
    • Notgrass Exploring America - Grades 9-12 - No books needed
THESE COURSES HAVE TUTORIALS UP FOR THE FIRST PROJECT, BUT MISSED THE DEADLINE FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR.  THEY CAN BE WORKED ON FOR FUTURE YEARS.  WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO WORK ON THE BUILDS ABOVE FIRST SO THEY CAN RUN THIS YEAR.

    • All American History 1 - Grades 5-12 - Need books
    • Mystery of History 2 - Grades 4-12 - Need books
    • Notgrass Our 50 States - Grades 1-4 - Need books
    • Notgrass Our Star-Spangled Story - Grades 1-4 - Need books
    • Notgrass America The Beautiful - Grades 5-8 - Need books

All courses need the CURRENT EDITIONS of the books.  They cannot be built with older editions.  These are the same books your students would be required to have if they take the course after it is built.  Affiliate links to purchase the books needed and give credit to VHSG are available in the Join Build Team Course.  Those links will also help you get the correct editions if you purchase them elsewhere.

Full tutorials are in place.  Experienced builders and admin are on the Build Team forum to answer any questions you may have.  Most projects are very simple data entry.

Please join us to work on some exciting new courses for our kids!

Please enroll in the Join Build Team Course for details to join the Build Team.  These projects can only run after they are built, and we need your help.
